It does seem a bit out of season to be talking about fall colors in the middle of cold temperatures and a snowy winter, but I guess that’s life this February. Today we’re focusing on warm shades—and without a doubt, these are the colors of fall. In this post, I hope you will enjoy seeing the subtle nuances created simply with black added to a warm pure color.
Last week we featured the warmest shades of all, yellow, golden-yellow, and chartreuse. If you did not get a chance to look at this post, do hop over there to see these pure colors’ amazing transformations when black is added. Today we’ll look at the remaining warm pure colors and their luscious autumnal shades. Many of these hues are very popular in quilts, paintings, jewelry, and interior design.
In next week’s post, you will see a selection of quilts that include warm shades. These quilts may give you some ideas as to how you may want to use shades to make your designs visually compelling.
